Golden Apple 2010

Each year my medical school has an award ceremony/dance known as Golden Apple. We didn't go last year, but since it's my senior year, I really wanted to go this year. It's a nice fun reason to get all dressed up and relax.

I should know by now to get my dresses professionally altered, but I'm too cheap. My upper half is at least a size or two smaller than my lower half. I think I spent a good 20 minutes just trying properly position the pins on my dress yesterday so I wouldn't pop out.
And then, it was trying to do my hair. Again, I'm too cheap to get it done. I always think doing my hair will take less time than it actually does. Want to know a secret? I used a bump-it last night! I've had them for about 8 months, so I figured it was finally time to use it. See the little bump? Not bad, eh? One of our friends had people over before the event. I was supplying some of the alcohol, but my hair still wasn't done. No fear, I proceeded to take my curling iron and curl it over there. Yes, that's how I roll.
So with similar occasions, alcohol was served. Our tickets included two bottles of wine per table. I'm cheap and we're all about free wine, so my friend and I went looking for any leftovers on other peoples' tables. Can you believe everyone drank all of their wine?!? But we did find some fresh water and desserts. Again, that's how I roll.
And this girl below, shes definitely one of the best friends I have and helped make med school that much more enjoyable and tolerable! Come June, we'll be on separate coasts =(
Don't get me wrong, I'm not an old lady yet, but I think I can still party like I'm 21. Man, I was beat by the end of the night! Every time I drink, I tell myself I'm going to slow down next time. I really need to start listening. I didn't wake up with too bad of a headache, but I think it took me until 6 pm before I had enough energy to feel like a real person again.
So, cheers to my last Golden Apple as a medical student and getting ready to start residency oh so soon.

I love the color of your dress! It's beautiful.
I am all about the free wine too.
